    hi, this PC is used by 3 people, today one of us downloaded some things from www.winamp.com/

    it's hard to know actually what was downloaded because the person uses computers very infequently, but he says it was only audio.

    i know in the past there has been malware in some of the plugins from winamp.com, so is there any chance audio from the site might have malware? thanks :)

    i havent heard much of any malicious winamp plugins but im sure they wouldnt purposely hosts any infected audio.

    you should be safe. just do ur regular on-demand AV scans.

    thanks, WSFuser. i suppose i should relax abit regarding Helen's computer :rolleyes: it's just that i spent so much time fixing it and getting it working that i don't want to have to spend more time fixing things.

    i should also make it clear when i post under other people's names :eek:

    no problem. u should also consider keeping an imaging app handy, it can save u a whole lot of frustration.
